To learn a new language, my focus would be on building oral language. Chinese is also very difficult to write especially for younger kids who are still developing their fine motor skills. I would focus on everyday vocabulary and use roleplay as a means of engaging my students. ICT such as interactive online games and videos will also be used.
In terms of Chinese writing, I would use analogies and demonstrate the pictorial nature of Chinese characters.
I am a Chinese-Australian based in Perth and am completing a Graduate Diploma of Education (Primary). My Mandarin language skills come from studying and living in Xiamen, China. The correct pronunciation is very important to me.
While I have limited tutoring experiences, I have worked with students in a number of different capacities. Currently, I work at a childcare centre in addition to my studies and prior to that I tutored high school students in Maths and English.
Rate may change if considerably more preparation and resources are required to meet the student's needs.
